OTTAWA — Stephen Harper says a Conservative government would spend $60 million a year on increased and extended tax credits for businesses that hire would-be tradespeople.

Speaking in Laval, Que., on the first full day of the 2015 election campaign, the prime minister says the apprenticeship job creation tax credit would help to deal with Canada’s long-standing skilled labour shortage.

The Conservatives would increase the maximum credit, first introduced in 2006, to $2,500 from $2,000, and also extend it to the third and fourth years of eligible apprenticeship training.
